North Miami Beach Democrat Mayor Arrested for Illegal Voting, Faces Significant Consequences
Florida is left shocked as the Democratic Mayor of North Miami Beach, Anthony DeFillipo, gets arrested on charges of illegal voting, putting the integrity of the election process into question. The mayor has continued to insist on his innocence, but the evidence against him raises significant concerns about the validity of the election outcomes.
Anthony “Tony” DeFillipo, the Democratic Mayor of North Miami Beach, was arrested Wednesday and charged with three felony counts of illegal voting. Despite no longer residing in the area, DeFillipo cast ballots in a North Miami Beach district, with each count carrying a potential five-year prison sentence, $5,000 in fines, and five years probation. Florida Politics reported on the serious charges faced by the mayor, causing uproar among the public.
Katherine Fernandez Rundle, State Attorney for the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida, provided insight into the felony charges filed against DeFillipo during an afternoon news conference. She revealed that despite moving from his Miami-Dade home to a new residence in Davie, DeFillipo unlawfully cast ballots in August, October, and November 2022, as cell phone data tracked his Miami-Dade location before casting the ballot.
Rundle emphasized that law enforcement takes election law violations very seriously, as demonstrated by the charges brought against DeFillipo. The Democratic Mayor has consistently denied allegations of not living in North Miami Beach. He claims to be residing in a rented, one-bedroom condo in the city due to “marital issues” while estranged from his family. However, the validity of DeFillipo’s story is questionable, given the recent turmoil and unrest surrounding City Hall.
In conclusion, the arrest and charges against North Miami Beach’s Democratic Mayor, Anthony DeFillipo, have raised concerns over the integrity of the election process and its outcomes. The mayor’s insistence on innocence is overshadowed by the weight of the evidence against him, setting the stage for a significant reckoning in the unfolding story.
